Written By: Luma Q

In the past few years, a number of new breakfast places opened up in Amman, not many got it right but there are a handful that did!
Often during the weekend i get asked where the best breakfast places in Amman are, so i decided to compile some of my favorites.
Whether you're looking for pancakes, eggs, humos or mana'eesh, check out the below list (restaurants are not in a particular order, 3ashan ma 7adish yiz3al).
Sahtein, Enjoy!


Al Usra

Al Usra is one of my favorites for a foul & humos type of breakfast, There is a small area for eating in. I usually take out some fateh, humos, foul and some falafel home for breakfast. Conveniently there’s a bakery close by too.

Abu Jbara on Madina Street is huge, and on Fridays it’s usually packed with customers coming for some good foul, humos etc… It is family friendly, fresh, good food & service is quick.

This place has been a success for years and years, their large manaeesh are phenomenal my favorites are crème cheese and honey as well as the za’atar and cheese with a side plate of labaneh. They have recently introduced a breakfast menu with omelets as well. Their outdoor terrace is a big plus for me when I decide on breakfast places.

The Bake House

The Bake House has been around for a while in Amman,  and was once the only place with proper American style breakfast, it still has its loyal patrons and unique style. In the heart of Jabal Amman, the place serves pancakes, eggs, sausages, waffles and other breakfast dishes.

Sufra is usually a lunch or dinner place serving authentic Jordanian food, but I love going to Sufra for some good mazat for brunch, their fatit jaj, eggplant in tahineh sauce, humos, mtabal are great! Their outdoor area in the back is huge and beautiful but I love front terrace area to watch people walk up and down Rainbow Street.

Location: Rainbow Street, close to Café Des Artists & Cups and Kilos
